Welcome to the Texas International Fishing Tournament!

Whether you have been a part of the Texas International Fishing Tournament (TIFT) family for as long as you can remember or you are just getting involved, like I am, WELCOME!   I am honored to have been chosen to replace Betty Wells as TIFT tournament director.  I have big shoes to fill replacing Betty, who retired after 26+ years of service to the organization.  I look forward to honoring the age-old traditions of TIFT while incorporating new ideas and an ever-fresh perspective.

The mission of the TIFT is to create a quality fishing event for anglers of all ages.  This mission is accomplished, year after year!  What makes TIFT special is the camaraderie and family-friendly atmosphere where junior anglers have the opportunity to catch not only a piggy perch but also lifelong friends.  Not many tournaments can boast multi-generational anglers quite like TIFT.

On behalf of the executive and advisory board of the Texas International Fishing Tournament, I invite you to become part of the TIFT family.  Whether you’re an angler or a volunteer, there is a place for everyone at TIFT.
